“Nigeria needs security forces that are proactive and intelligent gathering and not one-sided security forces.“It’s unfortunate that security operatives in Nigeria are one-sided so the president needs to bring in experts irrespective of state or region they come from.“President Buhari was elected to find a solution to Nigeria’s problems especially the insecurity but unfortunately he has failed the people by refusing to find a solution to the country’s problems,” Ibegbu said.
“Definitely, he should appear before the lawmakers. Except he is not the president of the country, that is why he should not honour the invitation. But if he is the President of Nigeria, he should honour it. The killings in the country is too much.“How can 110 people be killed in a day? And yet the spokesman of the president will be making useless statements, blaming the farmers for not obtaining military clearance before entering their farms. What respect do these people have for human blood? They don’t have respect for human lives anymore.“If the president has scant regards for the lives of Nigerians, he must honour the invitation and explain to the lawmakers what is going on. He is our commander-in-chief, not our lamenter-in-chief.“After the killings, he will be saying ‘I am shocked’, ‘I condemn it’. No, we don’t need to condemn killings. What are you doing to prevent further killings? He needs to go and tell the lawmakers,” Yinka.
“Definitely, he should appear before the lawmakers. He needs to come and talk to Nigerians through their elected representatives on the steps he is taking to keep Nigeria secure. He should go and explain what is happening as Nigerians have a right to know. Nigerians are not happy,” he said.
“They can invite anybody to explain but I don’t know how the president can come to them and start to explain security issues to them in front of the camera. As the president, he gets a briefing from service chiefs on the security situation. Will he now be revealing this in public glare?” he said
